Democratic Presidential candidate and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is facing scrutiny after it was revealed that his foundation gave nearly $14 million to Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion vendor. Bloomberg is staunchly pro-abortion.
Newsbusters reports, “The billionaire’s non-profit organization Bloomberg Family Foundation has given at least $13,962,000 to Planned Parenthood Federation of America within just four years (2014-2017), according to Foundation Directory Online Data.What makes the contributions so concerning is that Planned Parenthood and its affiliates performed 327,653 abortions in the 2013-2014 annual report, 323,999 abortions in the 2014-2015 annual report, 321,384 abortions in the 2015-2016 annual report, and 332,757 abortions in the 2016-2017 annual report. During this time, Planned Parenthood also received hundreds of millions in taxpayer dollars.”

Bloomberg joins a crowded field of candidates who support taxpayer-funded infanticide. Recently, the New York Times covered the extremism of the Democratic field, who almost all support unlimited abortion, on-demand, and at taxpayer expense.
We noted in our original write-up the following points of interest:
Joe Biden, basically taking Planned Parenthood talking points, saying, “Joe Biden firmly believes that women have a constitutional right to choose. Roe v. Wade is the law of the land, and should not be overturned. A core tenet of Biden’s campaign is truth over lies and science over fiction. No woman looking for information should be lied to. Period. Women must be able to make their own sensitive and personal health care decisions with their doctors.”
Cory Booker said, “As president, I’ll create a White House Office of Reproductive Freedom, charged with coordinating and affirmatively advancing abortion rights and access to reproductive health care across my administration. In addition, I will fight to pass comprehensive sex education legislation based on the Real Education for Healthy Youth Act that’s inclusive of all youth and provides information on a range of topics.”
Pete Buttigieg said, “As president, I will first try to repeal the Hyde Amendment. I am firmly in favor of repealing the Hyde Amendment and ensuring reproductive health care for every woman, no matter the state where she lives and works, her insurance status, race, ethnicity or place of birth. It should not be used as a bargaining chip for the federal budget. I will holistically evaluate every federal budget and my responsibility to govern in the context of all of my priorities, especially my commitment to upholding reproductive rights and ending discriminatory health care.”
Finally, Elizabeth Warren stated, “Abortion is health care, and health care is a human right. That means everyone should be able to get the health care they need. Even if Republicans manage to overturn Roe v. Wade, wealthy women will still get abortions. And it will be hardworking women, poor women, women of color, who will get crushed. The right to choose is fundamentally about the right to access health care — and every candidate for president must stand up and defend that right.”
